    It's a press release from the artist's camp. And how many times has an individual artist suggested their music would get it's own game?

    There is some chance that they are not quite talking about what the game will actually provide. So the reality is that we have to wait for the official announcement from HMX for the full story.

    What are you talking about, they totally made Rock Band games with the Who, Queen, and Jimi Hendrix.

    The intro to Mama Im Coming Home reminds me of Weird Al.....and Christmas.....and death

    GameInformer, however, is a good enough source that all eight were from those two albums.

    Instead of...you know...some.

    Yeah sure GI is a better source than Ozzy. Do you do stand up routines on the side?

    You got links to press releases where the artists made those claims. Put up or shut up.

    Show me one press release from an artist that misspoke about their availability in rock band. I'm not talking interview, Show the press release. Put up or shut up.

    O MY ****ING GOD! This has GOT to be the best metal track pack of the year!

    Wow, I was so ecstatic when I read the EXACT songs I wanted from Ozzy. I was a bit scared as well because they made it seem as though the pack was just going to be made up of songs from the two albums.

    Here's hoping "Hellraiser" and "Shot in The Dark" will be included.

    Edit: Whoops, looks like I didn't read it well, only two songs from him are not from the remaster albums.

    I'm hoping, if these two songs are coming, Mr. Crowley and Bark at the Moon will have Pro Guitar. Crowley's got awesome solos, and Bark at the Moon's got an awesome riff and an awesome solo.

    Oh hell there's enough good material for at least two more packs. Mr. Tinkertain, Desire, Hellraiser, Time After Time, Shot In The Dark, Killer of Giants, Perry Mason, I Just Want You, Youre No Different. Just to name a few.

    Frankly, I don't think they could have done this pack any better - 3 songs off Blizzard and Diary (most likely the 3 biggest hits off those albums, other than "Crazy Train) along with probably his second biggest song ("Bark At The Moon") and one of the best, most well renowned metal ballads of the '90s. This is looking to be my favorite pack of the year thus far.

    I don't think we'll ever get "Shot in the Dark". "The Ultimate Sin" hasn't ever been remastered cause of illegal troubles. The song was also omitted from "The Ozzman Cometh" reissue.

    i was wondering if "Dreamer" will be in the pack, it has alot of keys so it would make sense

    Couldn't be happier with the pack so far. I was pretty sure Mr Crowley was going to be announced but nice to have it confirmed, but with the emphasis being on Diary and Blizzard I was hoping for but not expecting Bark at the Moon.

    Mr Crowley's organ intro should be pretty fun for the keyboardists.

    i think there may be a substantial amount of Pro Guitar/Bass upgrades sort of like that massive Queen week.

    In the last podcast someone asked, "any words on if there's pro guitar upgrades for the ozzy pack?" to which someone replied, "i don't know, maybe 1 or 2..." followed by laughter. i think this could potentially be taken as a hint for A LOT of pro guitar upgrades

    if two of those songs have pro upgrades available with the pack only, (same way with we will rock you/we are the champions) the other 6 songs might have upgrades available as well

    Kinda pissed, Ozzy is re-releasing Blizzard and Diary. Why in the hell is Bark and Mama on there. Looking forward to Randy not Jake. Oh well, some Ozzy is better than none.

    Better six than none. We're going to have 7 out of 16 (15 if you don't count Dee but heck most Rhoades fans would gladly pay two bucks for such an important but short acoustic song) Randy/Ozzy songs, and I have a feeling that we might get the rest at a later date.

    Next to Crazy Train, I'd probably pick Suicide Solution and Flying High Again as my favorite tracks, but I have a feeling the pack will be balanced with other songs that aren't as widely known so I might have to wait to sing "wine is fine but whiskey is quicker". (since "Mama" doesn't have keys we might get some of the mellower tracks...ones with keys or strings). Revelations & S.A.T.O. maybe?

    I definitely can't get mad at Bark At The Moon, though, and that has great keys by Don Airey, who is in Deep Purple, played with Rainbow, cowrote Mr. Crowley, and played keys for Whitesnake (including "Here I Go Again").

    (lol i needed at least a week away from forum...but couldn't resist joining the Ozzy fun)

    PS I asked in another thread but does anyone know if the version of Crazy Train on Rock Band 3 is the remixed version with Robert Trujillo on bass or not?

    Randy Rhoads is my favorite guitarist of all time. I hope (but seriously doubt) that all 8 tracks have pro guitar.
    I also really want Tonight in the pack - cool keys and 2 great guitar solos.

    "Weird Al" Yankovic seeks permission as a professional courtesy to his fellow musicians and songwriters, and so he can claim ownership of his additions to the songs (his new lyrics on the parodies, and the flourishes he adds to the polka medleys). He is not legally required to do so.

    He brushes on this in the official Weird Al FAQ.
    I didn't know that. Shows that he is classy. Thanks!


    I would at least expect 4 pro upgrades for a guitar driven pack like this one. If Queen got 100% upgrades, this one should be pretty close. Definitely more than 1 or 2.

    The announcement on his site that the only the pack comes with pro upgrades, then I would expect many upgrades, perhaps all of them.

    I also think that would mean either two packs, one with and one without upgrades, or the pro upgrades are free. After all, it makes no sense to make everyone buying the pack, pay for pro upgrades. That's exactly why they are upgrades.

    Still, it means that pro people would not be able to cherrypick. Interesting choice if it turns out to be true, especially if the pro upgrades are free.


    And as far as I know, rab39, 'Crazy Train' features the original bass and drum tracks, in line with these 30th Anniversary releases, which also have the original recorded tracks restored.

    "No More Tears" warrants an RB3 version. That was the song they SHOULD have put on RB3 and had "Crazy Train" out as DLC beforehand.

    I don't think it will happen though.
    Crazy Train + pro guitar -----hello? One of the greatest riffs of all time.

    i don't get one thing about this statement in the ozzy site:
    [[ The Ozzy Osbourne 8-pack will include 3 remastered classics from each album including "Mr. Crowley" and "Over the Mountain" as well as additional monster hits "Bark at the Moon" and "Mama, I'm Coming Home" and their built-in Pro Guitar/Bass upgrades only available as part of the 8-pack. ]]

    3 of each album is 6 and not 8.
    where they will got the other 2 of them? from the live disc? hell yeah! iron man and paranoid maybe? or am i missing something?

    ---------------------------------------------
    edited: forget it guys. i just notice that Bark at the Moon and Mama, I'm coming home are the other 2 that aren't in the discs. sorry :)

    ---------------------------------------------

    my picks are
    Blizzard of Ozz
    - Mr Crowler
    - I Don't Know
    - No Bone Movies
    Diary Of A Madman
    - Over The Mountain
    - Flying High Again
    - Diary of a Madman

    and the extra two we know that are Bark at The Moon and Mama, I'm Coming Home.

    I'm not a metal-head these days by any stretch, but Black Sabbath and Ozzy played a big part in my high-school years. Super excited for this pack, especially since it seems (fingers crossed) that most songs, if not all will have the pro upgrades.

    My Picks for the unknown tracks:

    From Blizzard:
    Revelation (Mother Earth)
    Suicide Solution

    From Diary:
    Diary of a Madman
    Flying High Again

    I'd prefer to trade Suicide Solution for another track off of Diary, like SATO or Little Dolls, since I generally like the sound of "Diary" more than "Blizzard", but I'm not going to complain no matter what comes off of either of those albums - both great.

    Sorry, man. Copyright 101 says that you still need the original artist's permission to recreate their words/melodies in a non-parody manner.

    So, yes... there would still be copyright issues even if it were just a cover.

    The cover band needs permission to play and record a cover of the song, but does the company charting the cover of the song need permission from both the cover band and the original band?

    Not necessarily the original band, but a licence has to be obtained from whoever represents the songwriter, which is sometimes the band's label and sometimes a music publisher or some other third party.

    Doing covers does make the overall licensing process cheaper but it definitely doesn't make it less complicated.
